About CAFKA: 

Contemporary Art Forum Kitchener + Area (CAFKA) is a non-profit, artist-run centre that presents a free exhibition of contemporary art in public spaces across Waterloo Region once every two years. CAFKA takes contemporary art out of the gallery and presents it as a critical and integral part of community life, making it accessible to everyone. Between exhibitions, CAFKA presents public lectures, video and performance art, tours and workshops, and professional development opportunities for local artists.

Since 2001, CAFKA has supported a diverse spectrum of local, national, and international artists in the presentation and dissemination of contemporary public artworks through biennial programming, annual exhibitions, and special projects. CAFKA continues to amplify exhibitions and public programs of Indigenous, Black and racialized people, as well as people with disabilities, LGBTQIA2S+ people, and under-served and under-represented folks, reflecting Waterloo Region’s diversity of communities and experiences.

CAFKA is a registered Canadian charity whose activities are made possible with the active participation of its many volunteers and the support of its members, donors, partners, funders, and sponsors.
